Friday Faves: National Cookie Day!

I haven’t done a Friday Faves post in awhile! Truth be told, when I woke up this morning and noticed #NationalCookieDay trending, that was all I could think about. So made sense to share with you my three related faves. Make Your OwnI love this recipe I found on The Girls on Bloor’s blog for mint chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches! If I hadn’t made cupcakes last night I’d be in the kitchen right now baking this. Pinned it for later. Bobbette & Belle – 1121 Queen Street East I’m pretty sure you wont leave here with just a cookie! I had their gingerbread cookies and they’re SO good. Just for laughs  Me hear it #NationalCookieDay… Me have name for dis kind of day. It called everyday. pic.twitter.com/2F0LRodPd2 — Cookie Monster (@MeCookieMonster) December 4, 2015

Friday Faves: Cool Innovations

Throughout the week while surfing the internet I came across some pretty cool stories. Here’s a round up of three stories that stuck with me and I thought you should check out as well! Stories of cool innovations. Hitchbot A sweet loving robot from Port Credit, Ontario. With a name like hitchBOT you’ve probably already gotten an idea of what this robot does. hitchBOT has hitchhiked across Canada, meeting so many new people and taking pictures during his travels. The pictures include his location and are tweeted right away to hitchBOT’s twitter account. Pretty cool huh? You can follow hitchBOTs twitter account to see the exact location the bot left or is at. Unfortunately, hitchBOT’s experience in the US wasn’t as great as it was in Canada. Someone vandalized hitchBOT and the trip had to end early. (Check out this video about venge-BOT. A little gory but kind of funny) So…

Around the web

Note: This Friday Faves is dedicated to faves around the web.  Fave food story I’ve been seeing this story pop on different sites all week! (Esquire, Cosmo) As it is I’ve been craving Chipotle for so long and I haven’t fulfilled that craving yet. Probably because the closest Chipotle near my home is about 10km away. Not that far, but far enough for me to contemplate whether to go or not. Hmph. Anyways, this guy-Andrew Hawryluk, ate Chipotle for 153 days and had nothing but great stuff to say about the results of doing that. Fave recipe The way I love my tea, London fog. Now I can have my cookies like that too. Thanks to this recipe I found on the web: Fave tweet What a tasty surprise all the way from #England! Can’t wait to try the new #BBQ flavour😍😄 #TyrrellsFirstBite pic.twitter.com/eOgky8V0sL — Humara Kausar (@HumaraKausar) July 22, 2015…

Friday Faves: Essentials

What does your morning look like? Do you have essentials that you grab everyday or do they change based on your daily to do’s? It’s Friday and here are my essentials https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v8fNlsDq1z4 Fave Perfume: I’m going to get real with you. I have way too many perfume favourites. I base my daily fave on the mood I’m in, where I’m going and what I’m wearing. So since today is an errand running kinda day, I’m wearing one of my fave freshest perfumes. Acqua di gioia by Giorgio Armani. I keep this roller ball version in my tote bag in case I need to freshen up throughout the day. Friday Fave Lippy: Keeping today very low key with my make-up so I’m using my favourite subtle pink by Smashbox in Posy Pink. Fave Read: You never know where you’ll be standing/sitting, waiting in line for whatever it is, bored out of your mind.…

Friday Faves : Travel

Travelling to new places and learning about the culture and history of different destinations is something my husband and I love to do. Some trips are planned well in advance and some last minute. Our last big trip was to South Korea and Japan. We also had booked a trip to China this week for two weeks that we cancelled due to the wonderful new addition to our family. Now we look forward to taking him with us on all of our trips. The first one being to a resort in Mexico this May. When planning a trip, where do you look for information, inspiration or general tips? Reading and collecting the lonely planet books has become a tradition. However, a lot of the unique suggestions and tips come from articles. Articles like the ones I read in the Global Style Advisor that released today. If you haven’t already, I’d…

Friday Faves – Digital Age

The digital age is here to stay and you can either be a slave to it or figure out a good balance. Fave Video: It’s so easy to get enthralled by the speed of connecting digitally with people and the speed of answering your question via a google search. Some of us have turned into digital age zombies. Not able to have present human interaction because our minds are always elsewhere, thinking about checking our social media accounts, work or anything else but the person in front of us. Could it be because of the smartphone invention? Now that we have access to applications, the internet, messaging and more where ever we go, when ever we want. It has hindered us from being able to break from it all. Here’s a beautiful reminder that we need to wake up and remember to be present: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYeKQKwwD8w Fave Clutch: …

Friday Faves: Games for the Gamer Life

Fave Idea 22-year-old founder of shipyourenemiesglitter.com, Mathew Carpenter has a found a way to make money off of the annoyance of getting glitter on yourself and not being able to take it off. Don’t judge me, or….okay fine…. judge me, but I thought this was hilarious, innovative and pretty darn cool. I love pranks! I love pranking, love watching people get pranked and love being pranked. You gotta have a sense of humour to appreciate things like this and not take it personally. Shipping your enemies glitter in an envelope could be mean or you can laugh about it and enjoy the glitter for years. Imagine this, you get glitter shipped to you, you open it and it blows up and is now everywhere! After hours of clean up, months later, you see a lone sparkle that was left behind. Would you flash a smirk or cry? I would smirk…
